Topics I've Started

Thursday Challenge, August 27Th

27 August 2015 - 06:12 AM

Part of my obsession with digital scrapbooking is collecting and organizing all my supplies! I absolutely LOVE to see all the beautiful goodies and it inspires me to use some of the supplies I have forgotten I had! So for today's challenge, I challenge you to use a retiring product or two that you have in your stash that you haven't used yet! Post your finished layouts in the Thursday Challenge Gallery. I can't wait to see what you all create!


Here is mine: Sisters


I used Rosie Posie Collection from Elisha.

Thursday Challenge, August 13Th

13 August 2015 - 08:10 AM

When I was little, we would take a trip to visit my grandparents every other year. Those trips were so special to me! Not only did I get to see some very special people, they always planned a trip for us somewhere in Florida. Some of my very favorite memories involve reading the maps of the amusement parks we visited. It was my job to find where to eat and where the restrooms were. They had the cutest little icons for them!


So for the Thursday challenge, I would love to see your layouts including embellishments you could find on a map! These could be road maps, amusement park maps, or even building maps. Here are a few products that have some embellishments:


Roadmap Collection Biggie

Dads Suitcase Collection

Road Trip Collection Biggie

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Iconic

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Map Pointers


Post your finished layouts in the Thursday Challenge Gallery. I can't wait to see what you all create!

Fall Hybrid Atc Swap-For The Birds

12 August 2015 - 07:47 AM

Wow, did I really just type Fall??? Yikes! I'm ready for the cooler temperatures, but not ready for summer to be over! But I am ready for a new round of hybrid atcs! I love Ann's suggestion of Birds, so this round's theme is For The Birds!


If you are interested in joining us, here are some things to know:


The best way to do this seems to be to buy the 9 slot baseball trading card holders. They are designed to fit into a standard 3 ring binder. You can fold the sheets in thirds and fit them into a business sized envelope. Please include return postage in one of the slots, allowing for an extra ounce in case participants are especially exuberant with their bling. If it's not needed, I will return it with your goodies. Also please include a self-addressed envelope. We've found that the larger 6x9 envelopes work better than business sized envelopes but the postage rate is the same. When you mail the envelope to me, the post office people will tell you if there's a non-machinable surcharge. A great hint is to use your own address as the return address in case it gets "returned" for any reason.


Sign up in this thread by August 21st. I'll PM my mailing address to everyone. Try to have your finished atcs to me by October 1st. If I get them earlier, I'll mail them back earlier!














August Swap Crop Partners Listed!

I love to travel and play tourist, even if I stay in my own town! And, by looking at the gallery, I don't think I'm alone! So for this month's swap, I thought it would be fun to play tourist with someone else's photos! The theme this month is vacation, travel, day trip, etc, photos!! The photos can be from a trip overseas or a trip to the zoo.


Here's how it works: Sign up in this thread by Thursday, August 13th. On Friday August 14th, I'll list the participants in a column. Contact the person above you and below you on the list and exchange email addresses. You'll send photos to the person below you and receive photos from the person above you. The last person on the list will send to the first person on the list. You can send as many photos as you'd like, and any journaling, but only 1 layout is required. Reveal day is Saturday, August 29th. That's the day you'll post your layouts in the Swap Crop Gallery and send a flattened, hi-resolution copy of the layout you created for your partner to her.


Partners are listed below!

It is hot, hot, hot here in Maryland! What better way to stay cool then with water? We've spent hours playing in the pools, watching water sports on television and even watching people fishing at our favorite watering hole!


For today's Newsletter Challenge, I'd love to see your water inspired layouts! Post your layouts in the Newsletter Challenge Gallery so we can all enjoy the water!
